Kuassa is like a friend who (comes) when we are flat broke. He comes to help us in a practical, cost-saving way out. It has a lot of influence on realizing the sound that I want on the album:

Your plugins are great. I've been using them on a bunch of films already.

I use Kratos maximizer and the AT series EQs on every mastering project. The EQs are sweet and musical. Its oversampling is so good, the result sounds pristine. Matchlock does the job perfectly, especially about its multi-mic blending on the cab sim.

“Certainly a worthy rival to more expensive plug-ins”
“The plugins from Kuassa obviously helped a lot, VERY VERY VERY MUCH. The EVE AT-1 made tone-shaping effortless, always works when anything needs to be EQ-ed. Other than that, the amp sims (Vermilion, Creme, and Cerberus) simplified the process of recording guitars and bass. Its user friendly interface gives me an easier space to explore sound, especially when looking for something meticulous. Yes, I’m also using Kratos Maximizer to master the album.”

You guys are great, love the products
We find all the Kuassa plugins to be of the highest quality and with great usability. The Kratos Maximizer is now part of our mixing template as we really like the ooomph it gives to the mix as a whole. We're especially fond of the texture knob - not that we really know exactly what it does - which we feel adds a cool grittiness to the digital shine.

I wasn't aware of your company. I'm looking forward to hearing it. Maybe get David Pensado to review it...

Fantastic on drums, groups, or an entire mix! There are plenty of plugins that increase loudness but the Kratos is in a class of its own! Kratos helps me get things loud while retaining clarity, punch, and dynamics without the artifacts that come with most other limiting plugins.

I used Cerberus Bass Amp for every song on Satu per Empat’s latest album “Pasca Falasi”. It’s extremely useful when you don’t have access to real amps and I really love the result! I always use Kuassa’s amp sims when starting to produce a song. Other than that, I also use Kratos 2 Maximizer to master some videos for Sounds From The Corner.

Genuine plugin, made in Indonesia. Whenever I use it, there is a kind of proud feeling and a sense of pride. Hopefully, it can be such a trigger for others to make more cool and useful plugins. If (a piece of software/plugin) were not qualified enough by my standard, I wouldn't be using it at all. Kuassa makes great plugins; it offers tone variations when it comes to music production. That's pretty much from me, love you all. (kiss).

In this situation (Pandemic time), we can't go outside for studio recording, which has forced us to maximize our recording process at home. In this digital age, finding suitable guitar and bass sounds (in the box) is no longer as difficult as before. Kuassa Amp is our answer. The sound we want for our next album is available there.

Made easy. Undeniably proud as an Indonesian. (Kuassa plugins) accompany all the tracks on my soon to be released EP

On several projects that needed a unique distortion character such as in Fuzzy, I, and Polyester Embassy, I usually blend layers of the real amplifier and Kuassa amps. The result is unlimited tone possibilities. Even on pop music (projects) like Nadin Amizah and Munthe, where clarity and quality are needed more, Kuassa can provide that necessity. Especially for bass needs, Cerberus Bass Amp is my ultimate front end for any combinations. Fabulous!

great work and keep those plugins coming.
Kratos Maximizer is a transparent, mastering grade look-ahead brickwall limiter and loudness maximizer. Put it on your master channel to give that loud, commercial quality release out of your mix without squashing effect and artifacts. Kratos Maximizer offers easy control over the loudness level via the main Maximize knob while can also go deeper for more demanding users, giving a control over Texture, Release, Knee, and Ceiling for greater loudness while retaining your mixes original color and dynamics.

Limiter sounds really nice
My favorite from Kuassa is probably the Kratos Maximizer. I love the character and color it gives to any of my sound. It's good to saturate and phatten up drums. It adds bites to my lead synth. And give that warm analog feel to my master bus. It's like the Swiss army knife of saturation. And it's a decent limiter too at the same time.
Handy controls of Kratos Maximizer quickly become my choice when it comes to polishing a newly produced track.
